Analog channel visible beneath digital one

by jolysmoke / July 7, 2007 8:02 PM PDT

Hello, Can anyone help me with the following problem? With my new television ( Samsung LE 26S81BX/XEC) one can switch between analog and digital (using Kabel Deutschland with a Thomson converter) switching from one to the other. Now when I watch digital channels, I can see more or less clearly the picture of the last analog channel I was on before I switched to digital. It's very disturbing to see something like EuroNews appearing in the background, more or less clearly! What causes this and can one get rid of it? Hoping you can help! - holysmoke.

You mean the tuner inside the Samsung is defective and that means as it is a new machine that the store should take it back and/or replace it?

RETURN IT FOR REFUND OR REPLACEMENT, PDQ.

DEFINATELY A TUNER ISSUE, sounds like one tuner is bleeding its signal.

Best wishes.
